I once worked on a cattle ranch. Never slaughtered a cow but I fed the cows and calves who were destined to be slaughtered. They all had distinct personalities, though they were all dumb. Unlike horses.
I like steak as much as the next guy, maybe more, but it made me feel differently when I cut into a filet or T-Bone.
I have been single for about a year and I spoke with a woman who said she only ate chicken once in a while. I thought that might be a problem, had we continued. The scent of a steak on the BBQ is pretty special.
But I have reconsidered. Vegetarianism is healthier. It is more humane. I want to be healthier and more humane. Wine is vegetarian. It’s something I am considering.
